Cigarettes in Iraq, 2017

Cigarettes in Iraq, 2017


Cigarettes in Iraq, 2017, is an analytical report by GlobalData which provides extensive and highly detailed current and future market trends in the Iraqi market.

Since 2003 Iraq has been in political and social turmoil due to war and more recently Islamic State (IS) which occupied large swathes of northern Iraq from 2014. Despite this the economy has performed relatively well and the IS-controlled territory has shrunk. Strong economic growth and an expanding population look certain to boost duty paid cigarette sales. Volumes are forecast to grow substantially to 2026, as are per capita sales.

What else does this report offer?

  • Market size and structure of the overall and per capita consumption based upon a unique combination of industry research, fieldwork, market sizing analysis and our in-house expertise.
  • Detailed information such as market shares and recent developments of the manufacturers, leading brands along with company profiles.
  • Regulations, taxation, retail pricing, smoking habit and the growing health concerns affecting overall production.
  • Prospects and forecasts of overall sales and consumption for 2016 to 2026.
  • The Iraqi State Manufacturing Enterprise (ITSE) was for many years the country's only manufacturer, despite it suffering from the 2003 conflict when production was halted. ITSE offered a limited line-up of brands with Sumer King Size the most popular. Ben and Chemdan were notable value brands. It was joined by a smaller rival, Iraqi Cigarette Manufacturing Company (ICMC), in 2000. ITSE has now changed its name to SCTC (State Company for Tobacco and Cigarettes) and is in the process of re-opening the Baghdad cigarette factory.
  • As part of the reconstruction of Iraq, there has been a sale of state-owned assets, with ITSE among these. European Tobacco purchased two ITSE facilities in early 2005 with plans to refurbish both sites for domestic and export sales. However, the company has yet to operate in the market.
